PFA Chief Executive Gordon Taylor has called on Sepp Blatter to step down over his stance on racism.

The FIFA president came under fire from a number of quarters after claiming that racism ‘was not a problem on the pitch’ and any incident ‘should be settled with a handshake’ after the match. The 75-year-old later claimed he had been misunderstood but Taylor firmly believes his time is up.

Taylor commented, ‘It’s very insensitive and inappropriate. As FIFA president he has to be shouting from the top of the hills that it’s unacceptable on the pitch’.
